In the past, big names like Seth Godin, Aziz Ansari, and Martha Stewart took the keynote stage at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center for the Inbound conference. These celebs spoke to the thousands of sales and marketing professionals who attended the event. They inspired us with their visions for the future of business, sales, and marketing.
Inbound is not only a professional event filled with sales and marketing talent, fresh ideas, and innovations, but it’s also a star-studded event. And this year, at the quickly approaching Inbound 2016 conference, we’re excited to see and learn from these five inspiring (and famous) keynote speakers.
1. Alec Baldwin

He’s also appeared on stage for Broadway productions like A Streetcar Named Desire, Orphans, Prelude to a Kiss, and more.
He’s been nominated for a Tony Award, won an Obie Award, received multiple SAF Awards, won three Golden Globes, and two Emmys.
